Plotting a novel when life is stranger than a novel

That’s not realistic, they say,
You wouldn’t shut everything down,
Maybe some things, but not all of it. 

You should rethink that plot point. 
People just aren’t going to buy it. 
And cloth masks in the grocery store, no. 
No one is going to do that. 

Maybe a small scale thing. 
Don’t be overly dramatic. 
And people need to be fighting somehow. 
Sitting at home is super boring. 

I don’t think I could plot this reality 
And have anyone call it a believable novel.
